As a minority in a very high stress career, your lifestyle choices have to account for a balance in managing between work and life (as with most occupations), but especially front line workers such as yourself. Career-wise, the recommendation on finding like people/mentorship above, is highly recommended. Not only do they help to provide perspective and advice given the similar background, they can provide a good source of networking as well. As to personal balance, it is critical that you look to set appropriate boundaries and what I consider "non-negotiables" to insure that you prioritize what is needed to keep you centered and focused on what's important to keep you and your well-being in check. Whether that is time set aside for professional development, spending time with friends & family or reading a good book, it has to be a conscious decision and action to do so as women, we often have a tendency to overcompensate - in our careers, in life, etc. Set tasks that are goes towards achievement of that balance - some that you know will be achieved, and some that should challenge you. Both will allow for you to have a sense of accomplishment, whether that is a task completed, or one in progress. And as in with all things, take time to enjoy the journey - and not just focus on the destination and celebrate each accomplishment - big or small.

As you are discovering your interests and what your passion is, take the time to explore. Talking with others who share your interest, will help you determine your passion. If possible, find volunteer opportunities or groups that share your interests. By becoming involved you will see your passion/interest grow or you may find a new passion to explore.

As a Black professional woman, I offer you several things to consider:
- Seek out a person to be your mentor
- Join the student chapter of a professional organization in the area you’re interested in
- Read books, articles about successful people

You’ll find successful people aren’t always the richest people, but they are the people who have found their calling, working in a field that uses their talents and abilities and doing the work that fulfills them.

The best thing to do in life is find a passion, then from professionals that share that passion. Every career will have its pros and cons but through self motivation that a person last a long time. I would say depending on what you want to do, find professionals in the field, find schools or educational institutions that can help and support, join professional organizations as well as gaining mentors. Hope this helps out and that you reach your goals.
